Buhari’s vacation, ploy to unleash mayhem on National Assembly – PDP



The Peoples Democratic Party has alleged that President Muhammadu Buhari’ s scheduled 10 – day vacation in London was an alibi to exonerate him from alleged “ planned political illegalities , ” “ forceful invasion ” and “ mayhem” which it said were about to be visited on the National Assembly .The party said it was aware of plots which it alleged had been perfected in a meeting , on Wednesday night , between the Presidency and some All Progressives Congress senators, to forcefully reconvene the Senate , with protection from security agencies , with a view to impeach Senate President Bukola Saraki and his Deputy , Ike Ekweremadu .
National Publicity Secretary of the PDP , Mr . Kola Ologbondiyan , in a statement in Abuja on Thursday , also alleged that the PDP was aware of the desperation to illegally take control of the National Assembly .

He said this was part of the design to undermine the nation’ s democratic institutions and completely foist a dictatorial regime on the nation.

He said , “ The planned invasion is also a bid to cover the atrocious and humongous corruption of the Buhari administration , which the National Assembly is set to expose .

“ The PDP has been reliably informed about how these APC senators, especially members of the Buhari Parliamentary Support Group , have been provided with huge sums of money , illegally lifted from repatriated funds , to carry out this nefarious act under the guise of urgent need to approve funds for the 2019 general elections.

“ Having been demeaned by the widespread condemnation of the recent siege on the residences of the Senate President and Deputy Senate President , in addition to the invasion of the Benue State House of Assembly in a failed attempt to impeach Governor Samuel Ortom and forcefully take over the state , President Buhari is now jetting out of the country so as to appear innocent and oblivious of the political terrors about to be unleashed on the National Assembly . ”

He reminded President Buhari and the APC that the PDP has taken over the Senate and that the party “ is ready and able to protect our democracy with all instruments available in the constitution and parliamentary rule books . ”
